You are Invited to Join the Conversation

A friend just launched a Facebook group for parents who are using, or learning about, Trust-Based Parenting.  The group started a few days ago and there are already lots of great people on board.  If you would like to participate, go to Trust Based Parenting on Facebook, and request to join. While you’re at it, I would love for you to “Like” my One Thankful Mom Facebook page; although you may learn more about my family than you really want to know.

This is an unofficial group for families implementing Trust Based Parenting based on the works of Karyn Purvis and David Cross. It is not affiliated with or endorsed by TCU ICD or Empowered to Connect.

Maybe I’ll see you there!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

      Hi Dawn, yes, this group is based on the concepts presented in The Connected Child and other work by Dr. Purvis and Dr. Cross at TCU. It's great stuff.

    Lisa- This question may not be something you have time or space to answer here, in which case, I understand! I noticed one of your recommended books is "dont make me count to three." We read that book as well as "Shepherding a childs heart" (similar books, similar parenting) before we had children/fostered/adopted and loved them both. On this side of it, now with experience and becoming a parent trying to practice trust based parenting, I feel like these books arent too practical for adopted children since they focus so much on punishment, especially spanking. yet there is alot of truth found in them! i am conflicted! any thoughts about this? Thanks!!

      Hi Lindsey, I'm glad you asked about those books because I made that list a long time ago and I haven't thought much about them. I will definitely take a look – I have both books on my bookshelf. I will say that from my own experience, as well as everything I've been taught, I do not recommend spanking children with trauma histories. While it is punitive, it is not instructive for them.
